Living Art

Steven Cohen

1998, 24:00 minutes, colour, English


The Artist assumes four different personae: Dog, Faggot, Ugly Girl, Jew and takes these into the South African public in a series of unexpected and uninvited public interventions in order to test the tolerance levels of the public in their reactions to visual provocation. The four personae are aspects of the artist's identity, but not exclusive to the artist.
